    All or most of the restaurants on the T5 circle are owned by the same group, food from the same kitchen. I had the kale salad with chicken, no regrets. Bartender was very nice.

    I try to fly Jet Blue just so I can eat and drink here. The Croque Madame is the best anywhere. Drinks are decent though the booze selection is somewhat lacking. I concur with Maille, Jeff is da bomb!

    Waitstaff is incredibly friendly, prices are comparable to NYC restaurants, I overheard several people say the coffee was delicious, and a great place to make you feel like you're not at the airport.

    Atypical airport bistro that doesn't feel or taste terminalèsque at all. A Croque-Madame and a Chardonnay will make you feel you accidentally boarded on Air France and landed in Paris. C'est la vie!

    Awesome food. WAY better than your typical airport place. Check out onion soup and niçoise baguette sandwich.

    Like a smaller Balthazar (they’re owned by the same people). Try the Steak Sandwich, The Salade Nicoise or the Sauteed Prawn Provencal.

    Chicken paillard is good. Ask for salad with half the dressing or on the side--it comes heavily dressed.

    Stellar French Toast. Friendly counter staff. The food comes from a kitchen is across the way. Espresso is great too. All around a great find.

    Check out Winter Wipeout after 8 on ABC. Also, Thursdays has the best hostess ever.

    Order wine by the bottle...JetBlue will let you bring whatever's left onto your flight.

    Ask for less dressing on the frisée. With the egg, dressing isn't required

    what's good here, you ask? not much. don't waste your time. premade food that's cold when it gets to you, mystery meat and rock hard biscuits. sad to see pleasant, competent waitstaff go to waste.

    Similar menu to the fancier Resto nearby, but mostly cheaper by a few dollars a dish.

    If you like bacon, it is worth taking a flight to JFK just to have the frisee salad.

    Breakfast. Illy coffee (AM only). Espresso (all day). Ask for jam with your toast.

    This place has the beat bar man in New York City. Take a bow Jeff. Also does pretty decent food.

    The Croque Monsieur did not impress. Also note the order of fries is big enough for 2-3.

    this place really went down the tubes recently. mediocre food, ketchup in a plastic cup and a plastic knife to go with a regular fork. terrible.
